It's amazing what happens when you treat everyone the same.

At Word of Life, we seek to welcome and care for everyone with the same sincerity and warmth, because we believe everyone matters to Jesus. At Word of Life, no matter your background, you are welcome into family.

We invite you to join us.

coronavirus updates

We will be streaming our 8:30am and 10:45am services at their normal times on Sundays on our Facebook page as well as on YouTube. You can stream our services on Facebook this Sunday at 8:30am or 10:45am at facebook.com/wolnaperville, or on YouTube by going to tiny.cc/wolchurch, or if you go to YouTube directly, simply search "Word of Life Naperville" to find us.

*We will be returning to in-person worship on Sunday, July 12th. We have chosen to proceed with caution for the sake of our members and visitors. We will not be having in-person Bible Study, Sunday School, or Kid's Church until at least Labor Day weekend, as well as not practicing Holy Communion in our church services until that same weekend. We will be extending cleaning protocols, spreading chairs out during church to observe social distancing guidelines, no print bulletins, putting offering plates in the back instead of passing during the service, and asking those who can come for worship to wear a mask until the Fall. We will also not observe hospitality time between services and no shaking of hands. We value the safety of everyone.

*Preschool 2020-2021

Word of Life Preschool is closed this summer but the Director is available to meet with families. Please call or email to make an appointment or set up a tour. School starts September 8th and we are already making preparations for the Fall. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, WOL Preschool will take several precautions to help ensure your child's safety and your family's well-being. We will follow the policies and procedures set up by DCFS and the state of Illinois as we look forward to welcoming our students for the new academic year. Please contact the preschool by phone at: 630.355.7648 or by email at: director @wordoflife.net.


If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact Pastor Schoon directly by call or text at 630.355.9670. We are trying to stay up to date on current mandates and best practices during the foreseeable future. We will pass along any further updates as they become available.
